Weekly Spending Summary (8/31-9/6)

Wednesday, September 10th, 2014

Some of you have wondered where I get my printable coupons. Here are the main coupon sites that I use:, Coupon Network, Smart Source, Red Plum, Ibotta, Hopster, Checkout 51 and Saving Star.  Manufacturer websites and Facebook pages are another great source.

Favorite buys:
* Free Reese’s cups
* $0.99 Pampers wipes

Total Spent: $31.15
Total Saved with Coupons: $3.00
Total Saved with Sales: $10.75
Total Saved: $

Giant: $4.19
Saved with Coupons: $3.00
Saved with Sales: $10.75

Plus 1 gal. milk (not pictured)

I headed to Giant primarily to do a couple of gas deals but ended up having to get rain checks because they were out of stock.  I checked my coupons and was able to get some other deals though while I was there.

The olive oil was $6.99 after coupons and sales- a great price for that size bottle I thought.  The wipes were $0.99 each, the brown sugar was $1.09 which is just a tiny bit less than I pay at Aldi and the Reese cups were free.  Can’t complain about free chocolate!

My husband is only working 1 day a week since he started back to school again this fall.  The farm where we get our milk is on his way home from work and so it’s going to make it harder to always get milk there.  This week we ran out and so we grabbed a gallon at the Giant that is a couple of blocks away.  Paying $4.19 a gallon feels crazy when we can get it for $2.50 normally!  I’m grateful that I can at least save $0.25 with Ibotta!  Pretty much every week they have a milk offer and while it’s not a lot, it gradually does add up!


  • Milk  $4.19
  • Pompeian olive oil 48 oz. $7.99
  • 2 Pampers wipes $1.99 each
  • Giant brand brown sugar $1.79
  • Reese’s cups $0.79

Coupons Used:

  • $1.00 Pompeian printable coupon
  • Two $0.50 Pampers printable coupon (doubled to $1.00 each)
  • $0.75 Giant sugar ecoupon (loaded to my store card)

Got Back:

  • $0.25 via Ibotta for purchasing the milk
  • $0.79 via Saving Star for purchasing the Reese’s cups

Aldi: $26.96

Did a big stock up trip at Aldi!  I was glad to see that they have coconut again.  It’s a seasonal item for them and I always try to stock up on it during the fall and winter when they have it since their price is so good.

I know I bought 3 bags of brown sugar (one was at Giant) but I went through a bunch of it the last couple of weeks and my container that I store it in was pretty much totally empty!  I took several chocolate cakes with caramel icing to various events and it kind of used a bunch of brown sugar.


  • 2 Coconut flakes $1.29 each
  • 2 Brown Sugar $1.19 each
  • Peppermint Extract $1.99
  • 3 Black Beans $0.59 each
  • Powdered sugar $1.19
  • 2 Great Northern Beans $0.59 each
  • Tortillas $1.19
  • Ranch dressing $1.29
  • 3 lb. Oranges $2.29
  • Saltines $0.89
  • Pinto Beans $1.89
  • Canola Oil $2.49
  • Onions $2.29
  • Eggs $1.55

Got Back:

Misc.: $0

 * My mom-in-law shared some of their eggs and raspberries with us.  Actually she gave us about twice this many raspberries- it probably was close to 3 qts.!  Such a treat!

And my sister-in-law gave me more zucchini when they were in last week.  She actually gave me 4, but with everything that was going on, I forgot to take a picture of it before I used some of them.   I’m having fun using them to try some of these zucchini recipes.
